Cross cutting theme 2024-2026

Policy dialogue

We actively engage with policymakers and stakeholders to promote sustainable business practices aligned with the SDGs and global agreements on climate, nature, and human rights through direct engagements, consultations, and investor alliances like Finance for Biodiversity and IPDD. 

Policy dialogue is also a cross cutting them that spans a range of thematic areas. While voluntary action by companies is important for achieving progress, the regulatory frameworks for sustainable business, as well as our main engagement themes, are determined by international treaties and national policies.

Therefore, engaging with policymakers and other stakeholders in a transparent and responsible manner, is an essential part of our strategy to promote business practices aligned with the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) and global agreements on climate, nature and human rights. This may entail direct engagements with relevant policymakers, standard setters or trade associations; participating in consultation processes, co-signing open letters or presenting investor alliance statements at UN summits. Finance for Biodiversity and the Investor Policy Dialogue on Deforestation (IPDD) are examples of investor alliances through which we engage in policy dialogue.
